Is it a bit premature? Probably, but the questions are bound to pop up when there's only one team left without a loss.
Roddy White, in particular, has said that the Falcons can pull off the rare feat:
The Falcons have a tough test coming up against the defending Super Bowl champion Giants, who already destroyed the 49ers, another top NFC team, earlier this year.
After that, the Falcons' schedule is relatively easy.
The problem is, their schedule has been easy up to this point as well, so what have we really learned?
We've seen the Matt Ryan is having a great year with WRs Julio Jones and Roddy White, and that Tony Gonzalez is still an excellent tight end. We've seen that their defense can exploit bad offenses, and remain steady against good offenses.
Right now, the Falcons are among the favorites in the NFC, but there's really no way to tell how good they really are, based on what they've done so far.
This week should be an interesting test, and perhaps we should wait until after they beat the Giants before we start entertaining any 16-0 talk.
